Circle Housing’s planning application is now on the Merton Council website: Planning Application number is 16/P1968
Unfortunately CHMP are applying to destroy the green space between Ravensbury Park and “Ravensbury village”, thereby destroying an public amenity area that is also key to our area’s character. Placing flats on this space will block out the view of the park, remove a key green space for Ravensbury and jeopardise the very essence of our home area.

This planning application for Ravensbury will be decided against the policies in Merton’s current Development Plan, unless other relevant information, know as “material considerations”, indicate otherwise.
Merton’s Development Plan currently is:
Merton’s Core Planning Strategy 2011
Merton’s Sites and Policies Plan 2014
– The Mayor’s London Plan 2015
“Material considerations” can be anything planning-related, ranging from finding a protected species on the site to a Ministerial statement which changes the direction of one of the council’s policies.
